HanGeng will be the star of new Chinese drama “青春舞台 Stage of Youth”

*********** !!!! CHECK IT OUT: CCTV blog-假日剧《青春舞台》

Geng is going to play the leading role in CCTV’s upcoming drama 青春舞台 /qing chun wu tai/ (literal translation: Stage of Youth). The character is named 夏磊 /xià lěi/. It’s going to be a 12-episode drama~

The confirmation came from the official blog of the 假日剧 /Jia ri ju/ (Holiday drama). 青春舞台 is going to be CCTV’s third holiday drama. The 2 previous dramas were 梦想人间 /meng xiang ren jian/ that aired during the Chinese New Year period in 2006, and also Kangta’s 丁家有女喜洋洋 /ding jia you nü xi yang yang/ in November of 2007.

description of Geng’s character in the blog entry:
夏磊: 一个热爱跳舞的阳光大男孩,父亲是顶级射箭运动员,曾因夏磊的母亲去世与上一届奥运会失之交臂,父亲希望夏磊能继承衣钵,但夏磊只喜欢跳舞,在经历了与父辈的矛盾、重重的自我挑战、不懈的努力后,终于实现了自我升华,成就了生命的精彩,成长为新一代舞蹈巨星。
(rough translation: Xia Lei: a young man who loves to dance, his dad is a top notched archery athlete, because of the death of Xia Lei’s mom and also a missed opportunity in the last Olympic, his dad wish Xia Lei to follow his footsteps [follow dad’s dream to become an outstanding athlete to enter the Olympics). However Xia Lei only likes to dance, after going through dad’s objections, challenges after challenges, & with persistence, he finally raises to a higher level, achieves brilliance, & become the new generation’s dancing star.

You have no idea how happy I am right now. HOORAY for Hannie!!! Ever since I watch Zhang Li Yin’s MVs “I Will” “Happiness Left Shore” “Timeless”, I’ve been spazzing over Hannie’s acting. As most if not all of you will agree with me, Hannie is an AWESOME actor!!!!! He always said that besides singing/dancing, he LOVES acting. He also mentioned on various shows that his goal for the future is to become a great actor. Now, his wish is finally true, he’ll SHINE in the upcoming Chinese drama. The main character LOVES TO DANCE, that’s why Hannie is PERFECT for the role. With his AMAZING dance skills, GORGEOUS face, COMPLETELY hotness, I’m sure this drama will be VERY VERY GOOD, and VERY VERY POPULAR!!!!!

Also, Kenny Kwan, a HongKong male singer will be playing Hannie’s best friend. He’s quite cute, and if you clicked the link above, he’s the 3rd guy down. He used to be part of a duo group called BOY’Z, but then he went solo. Although his Mandarin is not that great, but who cares, as long as he is hot and good at acting, I’m totally fine with you. xDDDDDDD and also AWESOME female singer, Joey Yung, MIGHT be in this drama too. So guys, Let’s all wish for the best, and SUPPORT HANGENG!!!!! AND THE REST OF THE STARS!!!!!

 Other cast members & small description:
张峻宁 /zhang jun nin/ as 丁笑 /ding xiao/: Xia Lei’s rival, but will join forces later & defeat skilled dancer(s) from Korea (after reading the description a few times, I think they meant they were challenged to a dancing contest(?) by Korean dancer(s) & won at the end.
关智斌 Kenny Kwan as 阿呸 /a pei/: Xia Lei’s best buddy
TBA as 田会会 /tian hui hui/: Xia Lei’s childhood friend, a student of Xia Lei’s dad, an archer athlete, but had a brain injury damaging her visions in an incident when she tried to stop Xia Lei from participating in a car race. After being disqualified from being on the team training for Olympics, she continued to practice with the blurred vision & master the skill of being able to “listen to the wind” (LOL I don’t know how to translate this one, archery is not my thing). She got back into the Olympics team.
TBA as 申真依 & 申真慧: Korean sisters, younger sister is a famous manager for dancer(s), coming to China to find the next star & discovered both Xia Lei & Ding Xiao. Older sister is another archery athlete, coming to China to amiliarize herself with the stadiums & etc, & finds her best rival to be Tian huihui, but offers support nevertheless. yada yada. btw, their dad is Xia Lei’s dad’s old buddy and rival in archery as well.

p.s.: TBA stands for to be announced. I think one of the female characters is going to be played by 容祖儿 (Joey Yung), from a 张峻宁 interview. ALSO, this is a uber rough translation to just get the gist of the characters & the story.

    In fact, I read in another Chinese article that Geng is a possible candidate to be one of the 12 male leads for the Mainland China film “Fit Lover”, which is the sequel of the 2007 celebration film “Call for Love”, which starred 12 female leads like Fan Bingbing. (She played the lead female role in “A Battle of Wits”) I don’t know how true it is because the person who’s writing the article may just be writing his name down just for the heck of it, lol. We need to hear both sides before confirming anything.

    It’s true and so far he has the highest vote, please someone post this so people can see and go vote for him. I cant post anything in sjm’s thread in soompi, please spread the word, i voted.
